The melancholy and nostalgic "Summertime Sadness" by Lana Del Rey is an eerie song. Cedric Gervais, a French DJ, and producer remixes the song, giving it an entirely new vibe. Gervais turns the song into a disco hit that is ideal for beach festivals and summertime get-togethers.
The remix keeps the melancholy melody of the original song while adding a pounding beat to get the crowd moving. It's tough to resist the happy atmosphere that is created by the upbeat synth chords and a strong bassline. With a groovy guitar riff and rhythms with a disco feel, Gervais also adds a hint of his own sound.
The lyrics from the original song are still there in the remix, but because it is dance music, they have a different meaning. Instead of being a song about a broken heart, the refrain, "I got that summertime, summertime sadness," becomes a midsummer anthem.
In general, "Summertime Sadness" by Cedric Gervais' remix is a superb illustration of how a good DJ can take a decent song and transform it into a dancing classic. Since its debut, the song has become a hit and is still performed at concerts and clubs all over the world.
